This little chenille-backed blankie (tutorial here) is for my ballet teacher’s baby girl. I just fell in love with the fabric.
You see, sometimes I’ll see fabric that isn’t meant to be sewn, but it’s just so cute that it screams to be sewn. In fact, I heard this set of slightly pricey bed sheets screaming, “Sew me!” just recently. I justified the purchase because I wanted to give something unique to my Chemisette Handbag test sewers. So I ordered the sheet set and cut it up, giving half of it away and keeping the rest for myself.
Bing-Bing Bear (named for the bell inside his tummy) likes it too. Can’t YOU hear those owls and trees screaming?
